Fetal Monitors: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) January 14, 2011
Fetal monitors are devices used to record vital physiologic functions of the fetus, during pregnancy and birth. Fetal monitoring ensures that the vital fetal organs receive adequate perfusion and oxygen so as to have unhampered metabolic processes to carry out various functions. Besides the availability of non-invasive and safer prenatal diagnostic techniques, other factors responsible for growing demand for fetal monitors are increased awareness among expectant mothers; insurance coverage and maternity care reimbursement in developed nations. However, fetal monitors sales have reached a phase of stagnation in developed countries owing to high penetration rates. Currently growth is being driven by higher adoption of these devices in developing countries such as Latin America, East Europe and Asia-Pacific, as stated by the new market research report on Fetal Monitors. Greater healthcare awareness and improvements in standards of care in obstetrics and gynecology are the major factors driving growth in these regions. Hospitals comprise the largest end-users of fetal monitors.
The US and Europe represents the leading markets for fetal monitors worldwide. The US market for Antepartum monitors, used prior to childbirth, is projected to reach US$26.6 million by 2013. Home-based fetal monitoring technologies, already available extensively in developed countries, are gaining popularity in developing countries and are set to drive market growth. Intrapartum monitors, used during childbirth, constitute the larger segment.
